It's easy to get to Bruny Island for the day from WAVESTATION. Just ten minutes down to Ketterring, the home port of the car ferry Mirambella takes you across to Robert's Point on Bruny. Look out for the locals lucky enough to have their own boats!

Apart from the spectacular views on the neck and down towards Adventure Bay I have recently heard about a gallery at Dennes Point which show cases Tasmanian and local Bruny Island artists. Our friend Andrew is very keen to visit. It's called Art on an Island, I think. I am looking forward to his report. Andrew is visiting Wavestation after a testing walk from Cradle Mountain to Lake Saint Claire. It's the Overland Track and he is carrying all his food and clothing. He has a large fruit cake made by his friend Sheila which will weigh him down climbing up to Lake Dove on the first day. I hope he rations the cake carefully as it will be very benefical for energy later in the walk. Andrew will be able to enjoy a well deserved rest at Wavestation. Good luck Andrew keep us informed of your progress. We did the walk the easy (or easier way) with a tour group. We stayed at cabins along the track which had been provisioned before the season opened. We just had to carry our lunch for each day, our sleeping bag and clothes but no tents. This makes your pack much lighter. We were very pleased with ourselves as we were some of the very few people that climb Mount Ossa, the highest peak in Tasmania and enjoy it on a clear day.
